Snow, snow, go away!

Friday, January 25, 2013

"Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly"

A wee bit of Robert Burns for you, seems fairly appropriate for today! Having no Scot ancestors, we are under no obligation to be dining on Haggis, neeps and tatties tonight, thank goodness.

I'm a tiny bit fed up with the white stuff now. It's been lying for almost 2 weeks and the temperatures have not risen above 0*C in all that time. Well of course it hasn't, or the snow would be gone by now, wouldn't it? It's charm and beauty is wearing a bit thin now. I have things to be getting on with, not least of all training for a half marathon.

The forecast is for a sudden rise in temperature on Sunday. They are now warning of possible flooding. Roll on Spring!

    keep your fingers crossed FEB 2 is 7 days away

the tradition of using the
Groundhog to predict the arrival of spring. According to legend, if the groundhog sees his shadow (a sunny morning), there will be six more weeks of winter. He then returns to his den and goes back to sleep. If however, he does not see his shadow (cloudy days), he plays around outside of his hole for a while. If he does not see his shadow, spring is just around the corner

    Send it here!!! We're stuck at 80 degrees today in flippin' January and I really wish we could see winter. The news was going on and on last night about how we're having a colder winter this year because there's been 10 FREEZES this season, compared to last year's 8...yeah. I miss Wisconsin.

    Wish I could send you some warmth, I do think I would be pretty tired of it by now. ((HUGS)) Jackie emoticon
